Jack Taylor is a former cop turned private investigator with little to show for his time in the Irish Guards but his old police overcoat. Few of his former colleagues have any regard for Taylor, who looks more like the people they arrest every day than one of their own. The exception is his friend Kate Noonan, though even she has to walk a fine line between helping Taylor and irritating her boss. Aided by Kate and her cousin Darragh, Jack delves into some of the darkest cases of his career, including the cruxifixion of a young man, the kidnapping of his old nemesis, and deadly corporate espionage. But when Kate receives devastating news, Jack is torn between helpingher through her personal crisis and his willingness to do whatever it takes to crack a case.
